Minnesota’s largest juried art exhibition showcases more than 300 of the finest pieces of artwork selected from thousands entered by artists throughout the state. As you meander throughout this 1907 building, you’ll be mesmerized by photographs, ceramics, paintings, sculptures, textiles and drawings. Test your eye for art with the “Be a Fine Arts Detective” sleuthing activity for all ages. Each day within the Studio: HERE corner, an artist presents an up-close look at the “nuts and bolts” of how they create their art. Don’t miss the original 2022 State Fair Commemorative Art created by artist Leslie Barlow.
